How to Apply

Contributions

Facilities Project Managers' coordinate projects requested by our Retail Business Units and our stores. During the early stages of development and project definition, Project Managers consult with associates involved with the project to create solutions, eliminate confusion and prevent duplicated efforts. Project Managers gather project requirements to understand roles and responsibilities and also establish project time lines. They then define a scope for the project by defining expectations, equipment requirements and potential risks. Finally, a budget is established and project approvals are gathered from decision makers and impacted stakeholders.

Once a project is underway, Project Managers guide its progression. This includes communicating project updates and issues and addressing additions and changes to the project scope and design. Project Managers also facilitate the ordering of equipment, which may involve processes such as bulk purchase negotiations and warehouse staging. Furthermore, Project Managers monitor all project expenditures in SAP to ensure costs are accounted for and the total spend doesn't exceed the overall budget.
